    What was that play where the refs gave the Packers the ball? (Radio only here)

    The Pgh announcers said that we definitely had possession after a turnover, but the refs then said right or wrong, "possession is not reviewable".

    What does that mean, "possession is not reviewable"? I thought they did that all the time (receivers, fumbles, etc.)?

    Can you guys fill me in please?

    the FG was blocked. Clark picked it up (very briefly) and lateraled it to GAY who mishandled it. Hood slapped it out of bounds.

    Clark clearly had the ball in his possession, but the refs said they could not review it......Refs call on the field was that he did not have possession....

    Total B.S. call by the refs. We blocked their FG and the refs handed them a TD instead.


    If Roquan Smith falls to late teens, trade 1.28 & 2.60 to SEA for 1.18 & 4.120:

    1.18 LB Roquan Smith
    3.92 FS Jessie Bates
    4.120 RB Royce Freeman
    5.148 DT Ken Norton
    5.165 TE Chris Herndon
    7.220 WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling
    7.246 OT Brett Toth

    If not:

    1.28 LB Leighton Vander Esch
    2.60 C/G Billy Price
    3.92 FS Jessie Bates
    5.148 DT Ken Norton
    5.165 TE Chris Herndon
    7.220 RB Ito Smith
    7.246 WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling

    Any talk by announcers and such as to why _that_ possession or not call wasn't reviewable, but so many others are?

    The NFL will be apologizing for this one. The officiating continues to be abhorrent. Clark gained possession and his knee was down with possession and you CAN review 'down by contact'. The refs screwed up big time there. Possession should not even have been the question. Clearly he had possession and there should've been a review to see if he was touched down before the lateral. Had that happened, it would've been our ball, the illegal batting of the ball would've been moot.

    sASF, I guess because it wasn't technically a fumble, change of possession is not reviewable? I'm not sure. But this will be a rule that will be reviewed I would assume.

    We flat out got jobbed on that call. It seemed like everyone knew what the correct ruling was except for the officials.

    A travesty of a call. The. Steelers clearly obtained possession prior to the penalty. Even if they call a penalty for the Steelers batting the ball forward, it should have still been Pgh ball. To give it back to the Packers is ridiculous.

    This will be among the worst calls of a decade worth of football. The league will have some 'splaining to do. The league has made a mess of the game, with all the rules changes and additions. It is very difficult to officiate, but they should not have missed this call, and they did. I hope they won't ignore this or sweep it aside with a patronizing brief statement.

    I would enjoy seeing a weekly TV show on which the replayed all the botched calls and the missed calls. It might help hold the league accountable to put more integrity into the game.
